Finally a loyalty program update without the word ‘enhancement.’ In fact, no change at all!
Accor has just updated Fairmont President’s Club members that there will be no changes to the program for 2017.
We’re pleased to announce that your Fairmont President’s Club experience will remain unchanged throughout the next program year, and you’ll continue to enjoy all the same exclusive benefits, rewards and privileges in 2017.
Whatever the reasons may be, it is nice to see a travel company not in a headlong rush to devalue its loyalty program.
As with other hotel chains, if you use online travel agents (OTAs) like Expedia you will not get your member benefits. Direct bookings, corporate bookings, and booking through channels such as Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, which often has great Fairmont offers, continue to receive member benefits.
Though not mentioned, I see no reason to think the Chase Fairmont credit card will have any change in 2017.
